Be Part of the Art: Volunteer at the ACRE Tree Planting Next Week

By Hannah Coleman-Zaitzeff

Join our Arts in Nature and Horticulture teams in the planting of 81 redbud trees for Bernheim’s newest art installation ACRE by 2021 Artist in Residence Anne Peabody.

Located on the backside of Lake Nevin, ACRE is an art installation commemorating the acre of trees that were cut down on a daily basis to fuel the iron and ore industry before Isaac W. Bernheim purchased this land in 1928. 81 redbud trees will delineate the footprint of one acre.

For this volunteer opportunity, you will work with the entire Horticulture Team as they plant the redbuds! Tasks will include watering trees, back-filling, and mulching. CLOSE-TOED SHOES ARE REQUIRED, and long pants HIGHLY recommended for this project.

There will be 3-hour volunteer shifts in the mornings from 9 a.m. – noon and afternoons from 1 – 4 p.m. every day from October 24 to October 27. Sign up on Bernheim’s Volunteer Hub to join us!

If you have any questions or difficulties signing up please contact Renee Hutchison via email.
